The San Francisco Police Commission is formally beginning discussions on who will replace Chief Heather Fong.

Last weekend Chief Fong, the city's first female police chief, announced that she will retire in April. It's her five year anniversary.

Chief Fong is expected to give the committee input on who she believes should be selected to succeed her. The public meeting starts tonight at 6:00 p.m. at San Francisco City Hall.

The mayor will ultimately select the city's next chief.
